The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that New Jersey can unilaterally withdraw from the long-standing Waterfront Commission Compact it has with New York to police corruption in the shipping industry in the waterways the two states share.
All nine of the Supreme Court’s justices voted in favor of the ruling, which dismissed arguments by New York in favor of forcing New Jersey to stay in the compact.
Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote the majority opinion in the case, which is a victory for container shipping companies and a union that represents dock workers.
The Waterfront Commission was created in 1953 by New York and New Jersey to address labor corruption in the ports.
A year later, the Marlon Brando movie “On the Waterfront” depicted the labor-related crime that the commission was set up to deal with. The film won eight Academy Awards, including ones for best picture, best actor and best director.
